    Don't worry, you have plenty of years ahead of you to make all kinds of mistakes. The main thing is to learn from them, and also learn from the mistakes of others.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    The packaging for things now days is becoming quit cheap. Remembering back when film came in those cool metal cans as a added protection. Those days are over.

    Another person had the same problem recently and he only destroyed the first 5' or so. It is always wound so tight there is little damage. Might be difficult to remove the last few ft from the inside of the roll. The best is just remove 10' or so then test. Here is a photo of the outcome of the damaged roll as you can see very little was destroyed. The edges are toast but make sure you don't use the first 20' for anything important. After that you should be fine.

    I've used the Retro 80s in my 2.25 pinhole and gotten nice results. In case you didn't know, this film is extended red sensitivity. It falls off sharply at 720nm though so it's fairly slow. Could be the fogging was IR related.
